50 USD seems like a fair and decent price for a light that has had a lot of input from BLF members.

What LED is in the final production?

When you consider what is costs to build something similar, assuming you have the skills and don’t consider the time you spend doing it, I think it’s a really good price. I wasn’t even sure they could build and sell it at $50 and make a profit.

It looks like it will have a 6000K-6500K at first, then later Sofirn will get in the 5350K-5700K.

Then we can talk about a real BLF Edition. Maybe use smooth reflector, add retaining ring or move a bigger step forward for more leds and more powerful etc. It’s possible but not sure.

I swear I read 5350K on the listing but now I can’t find it. 6000-6500 is too blue for me, I think I’ll have to wait.

The HD batteries are currently not ready for sale, but there is a listing for them at $8 each and $17 for shipping. I expect the prices to be adjusted when they are closer to shipping.

As far as I know they are not bundled together, they are sold seperate.

The SP70 will sale on Aliexpress and Amazon.

The HD batteries are only at Aliexpress.

Great news, Sofirn!

Hope the HD 26650 batteries are FBA too!

you can see lots of options of 18650 26650 21700 batteries last year, but it seems amazon are very strict with these batteries and few sellers can sell via FBA.

77outdoor tried listing 18650, 26650, 21700 batteries but be blocked without any notification. Guess amazon robot did it.

Whats special in this Flashlight compared to the concoy L6?
Does it have a thicker shelf as the died Kronos Project or similar advantages?

Do you sell holsters for this Flashlight?

Higher lumens, further throw, better heat dissapation, better UI, cheaper price.

Here is the defunct Kronos K70 cutaway.

No holsters.

It produced some artifacts so they went with a light texture to make it look nicer.

There might be a true SMO reflector later.

In tests, the SMO measured 31 meters more throw. So it’s a small sacrifice for a nicer looking beam.

As I look at this reflector, I have the impression that it has “thick” textures. I hope that beam will look much better.

Wait, SP70 is supposed to come with a sling. Isn’t it convenient enough?

Quick question, just so I understand this correctly. If I order an SP70 and put my BLF user name in the comments I will get the SP70 BLF version? Or just the muggle version?

As said above, there is no BLF version yet, even what the specifications are has to be finally established,

Either way this is still a BLF edition for us because our input made it. At the very best another BLF edition will add a SMO reflector and a retaining ring if they want to pursue that. Nothing else will change maybe in the future we will see a multi emitter XHP50/70 light from Sofirn using this design.

Sofirn can you make some SP70 that are not glued? So we can access the LED and driver easier?

Amps should be the same.

There’s nothing making the LED hard to get to.

Yep, i am eager for the final BLF version as well

It’s about time, i can still remember the discussion about the design last summer when i was on holiday (and my wife was complaining about the fact that i was more busy with BLF on my phone then our holiday)
it feels like ages

I signed up for the original K70 w/SMO. I saw what difference it made on the L6, well published by VOB's vid on the L6 mod. Maybe this OP is milder, which is what's being said.

SMO, diced/sliced XHP70.2 - that's the direction I'd go. The SMO we need from Sofirn, but the dicing/slicing we need to do.
